In addition to testing for over 272 athletic banned substances, products bearing the Certified for Sport® mark must be produced in a manufacturing facility that complies with the FDA’s Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) requirements. The NSF Certified for Sport® mark is trusted by professional athletic organizations including the NFL, MLB, NBA, and UFC.
This is why your joints keep breaking down. Why aches and pains ruin your workouts. Why your joints (not your muscles) are the bottleneck holding you back from making progress.
Joints take longer to recover than muscles. Up to three full days based on connective tissue healing studies. But hard-training athletes and fitness enthusiasts rarely give their tendons and ligaments that much recovery time. The result? Your connective tissue falls behind. Strength-killing joint discomfort gradually sets in. And overall joint integrity takes a nosedive. Let's look at how it happens, and what you can do about it.
Just like muscles, tendons, ligaments, and cartilage go through a process of breaking down and building back up after intense physical training. Studies show collagen repair rates within connective tissues peak around three full days after intense training.16
When you push your body to its limits with resistance training and aerobic conditioning, this causes your joints to fall behind—never fully recovering from one session to the next. Over time, this accumulated joint stress reduces collagen mass, collagen strength, and overall connective tissue integrity.
Luckily, supplementing with collagen peptides helps rebuild your connective tissue collagen base. This allows your joints to keep up with hard training. But not just any collagen can do this. To stimulate collagen production, the collagen peptide MUST match the molecular weight profile of the connective tissue you want to bolster. And this molecular weight profile varies among joints, skin, organs, eyes, and other parts of your body made of collagen. This is one reason why generic collagen is so inconsistent in joint health studies.
Only one specific type of collagen protein has consistently performed in clinical studies, helping to:
Build and maintain cartilage
Strengthen tendons and ligaments
Improve joint stability, mobility, and resilience
Reduce activity-related joint pain
Increase connective tissue mass and bone mass
Improve lean body mass.
This type of collagen has been patented and perfected by German researchers.
It’s referred to as Bioactive Collagen Peptides.
And it's the backbone of our joint-building collagen supplement, Collagen Synthesis.
If your tendons and ligaments aren't keeping up with your lifestyle, then you are exactly who we had in mind when we developed this category-busting joint builder.
You CAN build stronger joints (instead of just breaking them down).
Just mix one scoop of Collagen Synthesis into water or any beverage about 30 minutes before hitting the gym and you’ll be on your way to building stronger, smoother, and more stable joints.
It's unflavored and mixes easily. So you can seamlessly add it to your existing pre-workout routine.
HOW IT WORKS:
Collagen Synthesis™ combines two patented, clinically-proven sources of Bioactive Collagen Peptides® with other key nutrients involved in connective tissue metabolism and repair.
Unlike generic collagen supplements that may be assimilated into bodily tissues at random, the peptides in Collagen Synthesis™ have been engineered specifically for cartilage, tendon, and ligament metabolism.
Never has there been a more precise, science-backed way to give your joints the raw materials they need to fuel collagen production and formation. This makes Collagen Synthesis a great choice at any time of your day. But when you take Collagen Synthesis before exercise, the benefits are amplified. It's the first pre-workout collagen supplement for total connective tissue health.
Collagen Synthesis™ combines two of the most science-backed collagen peptides.
Not only are the ingredients in Collagen Synthesis proven to help you build stronger connective tissue structures along with exercise, they also help reduce activity-related joint pain, strengthen tendons and ligaments, and improve joint mobility.
The power of Collagen Synthesis comes from the unique peptide profiles in the patented ingredients Fortigel® and Tendoforte®.
It also contains three other nutrients that work synergistically with these collagen peptides to support collagen fibril formation and connective tissue health.
Published research shows the ingredients in Collagen Synthesis may help:*
Build and maintain cartilage.
Strengthen tendons and ligaments.
Improve joint stability, mobility, and resilience.
Fortigel® is a collagen peptide that has been effectively ‘cut’ to match the receptor sites within cartilage tissues. When consumed, it helps stimulate chondrocytes — the cells responsible for cartilage maintenance.9
Collagen Synthesis contains 5 grams of Fortigel®— the clinically supported dosage for supporting cartilage maintenance.
Tendoforte® has a molecular weight that matches the receptor sites in tendons and ligaments. It helps produce more fibroblasts. These are the cells responsible for synthesizing new collagen and maintaining the structural framework of connective tissue.9
Fibroblasts also play a crucial role in the tissue healing process, making Tendoforte® especially effective at improving the strength and stability of tendons and ligaments.
The clinically-supported dosage of Tendoforte® is 5 grams (taken before exercise).
Supplementing with Vitamin C supports optimal collagen formation and reduces oxidative damage from exercise-induced tissue stress.10, 11
In cases of Vitamin C deficiency, collagen fibers are not able to repair properly and lack adhesion strength. More importantly, your body can’t form or store collagen without Vitamin C present, making it a crucial cofactor in the collagen formation process.
A 2019 pilot study published in the International Journal of Sport Nutrition and Exercise Metabolism showed that taking Vitamin C in conjunction with collagen peptides before training doubled collagen synthesis rates in the exercising joints.12
The only problem is Vitamin C can be rough on your stomach when taken before exercise. That’s why we included 120 mg (133% Daily Value) of easily-digested, Buffered Vitamin C in each serving of Collagen Synthesis.
The leaves of olive trees contain a potent antioxidant and healing extract called oleuropein. Just 50 mg of olive leaf extract containing oleuropein is enough to improve age-related joint pain and stiffness (in as little as 4 weeks).13
Each serving of Collagen Synthesis contains 50 mg of olive leaf extract (standardized to 20% oleuropein).
If Collagen Synthesis doesn't work for you, just let us know anytime within 90 days of your order, and we'll process a refund for you.
No return necessary. No hassles. (For orders of more than 1 bottle, we ask that you return unused items. See full policy here.)
How can we afford to do this?
The vast majority of our customers get great results and end up buying from us again. Even with this "first bottle free" policy, our refund rate is still incredibly low. This demonstrates our commitment to your satisfaction.
Mix one scoop into any beverage or meal once daily. For best results, consume one serving 30 minutes before exercising.
Q: Can I take Collagen Synthesis™ on days I don't work out?
Absolutely. Just mix one scoop into any liquid or beverage.
Q: Can I mix it into my coffee, or will hot coffee damage the collagen?
Yes, you can. Coffee will NOT damage the collagen peptides. The initial degradation temperature of collagen is 572° F. Coffee is typically brewed to around 185° F.
Q: Should I take undenatured Type II collagen or collagen protein? What's the difference?
Both are effective. And both can be taken together depending on your goals.
Type II collagen produces a novel effect in the body in that it regulates the immune response responsible for inter-cartilaginous inflammation. This supports the overall healing process and helps manage joint discomfort.
Collagen peptides (aka Collagen Protein) are made primarily of Types I and III, which have different mechanisms and effects. They help kick-start the machinery that builds new collagen and optimizes tissue formation.
Type II primarily protects against and helps with inflammation. Types I and III (what's in Collagen Synthesis) primarily serve as building agents.
Q: Is collagen a low-quality protein?
Collagen's low protein quality score compared to other forms, like whey, egg, etc. is irrelevant.
The mechanism of action of Collagen Synthesis depends on the cell signaling process that takes place when you consume it... Not the amino acid profile.
Your body's response to detecting collagen in the bloodstream is what serves as the main driver of new collagen production and formation.
You can come back stronger.
